This week's
Supply Chain Cartoon Caption Contest Winners:


John Gallucci

Nice Pak

Craig Wanggaard
Apogee Performance


Both will all receive a framed copy of their cartoons and caption with recognition from Supply Chain Digest and be eligible for our semi-annual prize as voted on by readers.

We had just under 200 submissions for this contest, down a bit from usual but probably result of summer vacations and such. Thank you!

We had quite a few submissions referencing Spiderman 2/Octoman, and also a good number going way back for "Lost in Space" oriented captions, and as alwayswe only used one or two of each.

Our general advice - best to avoid caption themese that upon reflection you may decide lots of others will also use.


Many other great entries! See other especially funny captions below.

Didn't make it? Don't despair - we just have far too many entries to post them all. But you will make it soon!

New cartoon on the SCDigest web site on Monday July 18, 2011.
